It’s strange to be asked to write a review about something normally relatively private such as underwear, but as with bowel movements and intimate chaffing, it seems that everything is acceptable run-chat so here we are.
Saxx are a specialist men’s underwear brand that’s branched out into sportswear and have teamed up with Maverick Race to bring their product across the pond and save you from chaffing! If you’ve ever run in the pouring rain or for a long-distance you will have no doubt experienced some painful chaffing from some ill-fitting kit. I’ve certainly been there, thinking I got away with it until I get in the shower and the sweat runs into the chaff, OUCH! But after the last few weeks trialling Saxx showers are a thing of the past.
The Kinetic boxer brief I’ve been wearing are made from moisture-wicking micro-mesh material that gets the sweat off your skin, keeping you dry and chaffe free. But the real star of the show is the Ballpark Pouch. Yea I said Ballpark pouch. Forgive the details, but this hammock-inspired design keeps all your most sensitive bits away from your legs preventing chaffing and keeping them snug, safe and secure. It sounds a bit full-on but it’s genuinely super comfortable, so much so that these undies have worked their way into my daily life even when not running. The cherry on the top is that you can get seemingly endless combos of cut, length, colour and pattern so you’ll definitely find something to suit your underwear drawer.
So give what’s under your shorts the attention it deserves and try out a pair; I think you’ll be surprised at what real comfort can feel like!
